The Corvette Stingray had grown to be America's most popular
sports car since its debut in 1953 but it was time for a change for
the 1963-1967 models. Even the most superlative design grows
whiskers after a decade and Chevrolet chief. Bill Mitchell. and
stylist. Larry Shinoda. faced a tough task; to improve a living
legend. Not only did they succeed but their creation turned
into a modern classic and they created the most collectible
Corvette of them all sending sales soaring to record levels. Seeds
were planted by the Stingray Special racer and experimental XP-720
which displayed a smooth fastback profile and split back window.
These and other styling details such as pivoting hidden headlights. br/>doors cut into the roof. and a swage line dip all wound up in the
production Sting Ray. The four headlights aligned with the pointy
frontend when shut. rotating open when needed. Luggage space grew. br/>though lack of a boot lid earned few plaudits. There was less
fibreglass but nearly twice as much steel in the sculptured body. br/>which rode a shorter 98-inch wheelbase.

This striking example of the Corvette Stingray was restored in
2014. The whole body was sandblasted and painted in the beautiful
blue seen in the photographs. Under the car. the suspension and
braking systems were overhauled with new parts. The 350ci. big
block engine underwent work too with new seals fitted. Inside the
car the vendor informs us the interior is all original and so is
the soft top convertible roof. With summer around the corner this
Stingray is definitely ready for some adrenalin-filled open top
motoring.

Interested parties should note that EU taxes have
been paid when the car cleared customs in
Germany.
